Adam Comments: The men being attacked by the sinister tentacle are not, in fact, wearing white leotards. They are covered in a fine white-haired pelt. I’m not sure who in the chain of events leading to the publishing of this book was taking copious amounts of drugs.

My right arm is huge! My left... not so much.Click for full image
